Gate Safe, a charity that was the first to raise awareness of the need for improved standards in the safety of automated gates, marked another important milestone recently, as it celebrated its
150th training event, held at Trade Skills 4U, Crawley – a long-standing supporter of Gate Safe. The
latest training session brings the total number of installers on the acclaimed national register of Gate Safe Aware installers up to 1,700.
Since the roll-out of the IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety & Health – the world’s biggest professional health and safety membership organisation) approved training – Gate Safe has delivered its popular ‘plain English’ training with a strong practical focus on a regular basis. All delegates that pass the course are eligible to feature on the Gate Safe
register which has quickly become the go-to source of information for anyone looking to appoint a competent and suitably trained installer.
Commenting on the continued growth of the register, founder Richard Jackson said, “Our training has been specifically developed to cater for the needs of the average installer who is keen to uphold the highest standards in automated gate safety. Working with Trade Skills 4U over the past five years has allowed us to extend the reach of our gate safety messaging to professionals such as electricians to ensure they understand the required protocol to deliver a safe gate or barrier.”
